  General Notes:

In 1324, Matthew the second son of Richard was involved in several land transactions of "all his lands in Aynstaplelith and Routheclive, in Cumberland, and of the reversion of all the lands in Bourstede in the town of Burgh-on-Sands, and the manor of Terriby, except 60 acres of land and meadow in the same manor, which lands and manor Richard, father of the donor, holds by the courtesy of England of the donor's inheritance". The land was transferred to his clerk Sir Robert de Tymparon. This was some sort of subterfuge since the property was returned to Matthew a year later. The 60 acres that Richard held back reverted to Matthew on Richard's death in 1332. Thus, by 1325 Matthew and his wife Agnes were in possession of the manor of Terriby near Carlisle. This was the same manor brought into the family by the marriage of Mary to John Terriby two generations earlier. Evidently Mary and John had no children and the Terriby estate, and presumably the properties Mary inherited from her brother Nicholas, passed to her nephew Richard, son of her half brother Matthew. By 1324 most of Terriby was owned by Matthew Whitfield and in 1347 half the manor was gifted to his daughter Juliana on her marriage to Adam de Agilyounby (Aglionby), who owned an estate adjacent to Terriby. 1

  Research Notes:

The pedigree of William Whitfield who married Maud Whitlaw/Whitley has been sourced from the Whitfield One-name website. At the moment none of the information has been verified and should be treated with appropriate caution.

Matthew married Agnes.1 (Agnes was born about 1306 1.)
